Decorating for Valentine's Day

Since I started this blog, I thought it would be fun to decorate "lightly" for occasions I don't normally decorate for and Valentine's Day is one of them. So here is my front door wreath for Valentine's Day! I like how simple it is and how easy it was to pull together.

It's not hearts but I like the polka dots because I could use it for Valentine's Day or Christmas! I purchased the polka dot ribbon at an after Christmas sale for a quarter. Then I bought a medium size straw wreath at Michaels for just over $1.00. Pretty sweet! 

I knew I wanted the wreath to be white so I used some latex house paint from the garage to paint the straw wreath. FREE is always nice! I painted one side and let it dry before doing the other side.

I used the glue gun to attach the ribbon when I was ready. I first wrapped the ribbon around the wreath to test the spacing before actually using the glue gun.
Once I got to the end, I made sure the ribbon overlapped my starting point and I cut off the excess ribbon and glued it down.

Now we have a cute wreath for Valentine's Day! It looks nice and simple!
